Forget fried onion rings and fire up your oven to make better-for-you, crispy baked onion rings instead. These Vidalia onion rings tossed with a combination of paprika, ground almonds, corn cereal and ground flax seeds before being baked to crispy perfection. I bet you’ve never had an onion ring quite like this one! There’s no bread or gluten in this recipe, so they’re not just healthy, they’re perfect for those who can’t eat gluten. Make these for a summer BBQ or a weeknight dinner at home.

Gluten-Free Baked Onion Rings

Serves 4

2 large Vidalia onions, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch slices
2 large eggs

2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
2 teaspoons ground almonds

    I never have any complaints on anything food network related, but if this how the recipe turns out I don't want to try them. It looks like a big mess to me and not like any onion rings I've ever seen..

    These would be a lot better if you pulsed all the dry ingredients in a food processor until it's much finer, resembling a mixture much closer to what real onion ring coating would look like. As is, I agree this doesn't look tasty!
